The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has produced a documentary about Etihad Museum to commemorate ‘The Year of Zayed’. The documentary narrates the story of the landmark building that was constructed according to the directives of His Highness Shaikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, at the historic location at which the Founding Rulers signed a declaration in 1971 on the formation of the UAE.
The RTA said that in collaboration with the Government of Dubai Media Office (GDMO), the documentary will be made available on GDMO’s YouTube channel and RTA’s website, apart from various social media channels of GDMO. It will later be distributed to local TV channels for wider broadcast.
Mattar Al Tayer, Director General and Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Roads and Transport Authority, said the documentary aims to preserve the memory of the construction of this major national monument.
The hour-long documentary tracks the various stages of the development of the Dh600 million museum built on an area of 26,000 square metres — from the initial design to the official inauguration of the building.
